|H&B Home Service attends team summit|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
Howard and Betty Hunter of H&B Home Service of Holyoke just returned from Orlando, Fla. after attending an annual team summit meeting for DISH Network retailers.
At the recent meeting, about 3,000 DISH retailers from all over the United States heard more about the new satellite receivers known as the Hopper and Joey.
Howard Hunter said he is excited about the fact new receivers are now available to new customers as well as an upgrade to current customers.
DISH satellite subscribers will now get the choice to automatically skip over commercials. The new “Auto Hop” capability for the Hopper whole-home HD DVR system was activated last week, and allows customers to skip all commercials for most recorded primetime HD programs shown on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC when viewed the day after airing.
“Auto Hop” is an extension of the Hopper’s PrimeTime Anytime™ capability, the exclusive feature that allows viewers, with one click, to record all of the primetime TV programming on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC in HD. The Hopper automatically stores these shows for eight days after they have aired.
